Interior design is not just concerned about how your home will look like, but it lays more stress on making the space more functional because it is often seen that where a small residence may have just everything pitch perfect with nice interior design and space saving tricks; a big home on the other hand can be often seen poorly interior designed and the space will appear visually constrained.

Not everybody will react the same way to the same color, because colors influence us on a few different levels. On one hand, we have the general social or cultural level, and on the other hand, our reaction is individual, influenced by how this color is presented in our personal lives. For example, red is typically associated with a sense of urgency, it represents danger and forces us to become more alert, more active. On the other hand, it might also be one of the colors of your grandma’s kitchen, making you feel all warm and safe instead.
